Back in the summer when we heard the news about the latest next-gen consoles coming to the market, in the PS5 and Xbox Series X, we heard about a lot of new features and upgrades coming to those consoles in terms of graphics and power. One of those features that was repeatedly talked about was ray tracing, and how big of a game-changer it was going to be. Well, we have the effects of it on PC already before the consoles have come out, and perhaps the biggest and most talked about game getting the ray tracing treatment is Minecraft.
Minecraft has been one of the most popular games of all time - as it has proven to be an evergreen participant as games have come and have gone. It was there when we had the likes of Batman Arkham Asylum, Plants Vs Zombies, Resident Evil 5 and more - and it’s here when we have Last Of Us II and Red Dead Redemption 2. It’s truly astonishing how this game has lived such a long and consistent life, and still doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of slowing down.
The sandbox game, in which you have the ability to just build your castles freely, or team up with your friends to beat bosses and monsters, is now getting a major graphics upgrade and will definitely impress fans greatly when they do get to see it. The involvement of ray tracing has a huge say in that, as it basically helps in adding realistic shadows, better lighting and an overall improved game environment - all of which is bound to make the gaming experience better as the worlds you play in look ten times better.
However, ray tracing officially at the moment is only available on the PC version of the game, as the Pocket Edition of Minecraft was neglected - probably due to phones not being as powerful as the latest PCs to support RTX enabled gameplay. But, we have a trick for you to get some of the benefits of the ray traced worlds on the mobile version of Minecraft, as it will definitely help enhance your game's graphics.
All you need to do is go to APKPure, one of the most reliable APK websites - and go the link of this mod here. Download the mod and load it up in Minecraft, and you're good to go! This won't bring the complete effects of RTX on PC, but it will be better than the base version of the game, with better graphics overall.
